At the ordinary, civilized level,
Part of neurons’ responsibility — (vis a vis, hormones) —
Is to make just everyday existence seem more complicated than it physically is.
…(And what better description of civilization could you ask for.)
The king can execute you,
And the priest can make you feel guilty,
But of what use is a thinker to the crowd?
Partisan Thought: Two-ply condoms for the mind.
All men see clouds,
The ordinary see them as either natural phenomenon,
Or in times of calm — metaphors,
While thinkers see them as both! — all the time! — simultaneously.
Until you can think afresh for yourself
You really have no idea just how boring ordinary explanations of life actually are.
If the hormonal life of mankind is like a gigantic armada of cruisers, battleships & destroyers,
Then his neural one is like a fleet of submarines
Or, you could see this the other way around.
Serious-discussions-about-everyday-affairs equal, debates-over-mirages.
A civilized man without ritual and mental habit
Is like a racing ship without a keel ….or else maybe like a potential thinker, maybe.
The simple are always in the midst of some explanation or the other.
When originality is your navigator,
Creativity, your skipper,
And your own mind your berth —
You need not then give anyone else a wide one.
Thinking that doesn’t constantly renew itself is not real thinking.
A Neural Sailor’s Law Of The Intellectual Sea:
When your latest dinghy becomes large enough to be a cruise ship — abandon ship!
To live your private life in public is to spill your guts,
And to “spill your guts” is to eventually have no guts.
Thinkers In The City — Thinkers On The Farm:
When eagles debate pigs – neither flies.
Note: In this regard — pigs don’t know, so pigs don’t care.
What could be more pleasurable to the blind than to see!?
And to a thinker, than to — think more!?
Plagiarists never get it right.
While the mind has nothing to truly fear
It remains the seat of man’s greatest fears.
Trouble In Paradise: (A poem):
Before man — there was no paradise;
After him — trouble!
If you do it right —nobody really cares what a thinker does.
“Help!” cried a man’s mind, “I’m the victim of a ‘drive-by-shooting,’
And the license plate on the car said: “The Public.”
Some Shouting News
A man with something truly to shout about, doesn’t shout.
In neural endeavors, self-reference is always a form of self-destruction.
Humility for monks — silence for thinkers.
Stress: Givin’ civilization the bad rap.
